Orange chia seed breakfast pudding

I couldn't resist trying this recipe out even though I knew the texture would probably get to me after a while.  It did, but I'm proud to day I ate all but the last 2 bites of it.  Of course there were 2 servings and the other is still sitting in the fridge.  Hopefully someone else will be able to enjoy it before I have to toss it.  If you have not texture issues, this is quite a tasty and healthy breakfast and raw to boot.  Can't beat that.  You do have to start it the night before because you have to make the almond milk, but that is plenty simple.  Just plan ahead.


  • 1/4 cup raw almonds, soaked overnight, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 pitted dates
  • 3 oranges
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  1. Place almonds and water in high powered blender and blend until well blended.  Strain with a nut bag or very fine strainer.  
  2. Place almond milk back in blender with dates and blend until smooth.  Zest 1 orange and add the zest to the blender.  Peel and section the zested orange and set aside for later.  Juice the remaining 2 oranges and add the juice to the blender.  pulse to combine.  
  3. Add chia seeds and stir.  Let set for 20 minutes.  Stir in orange sections.  Makes 2 servings
